Do you feel like you’re trying to make it work on your own?
Being in an unsatisfying relationship can be a lonely experience. You might be feeling defeated, as though you have tried everything to make it work, but it isn’t getting better. Maybe your partner doesn’t seem to put in the same amount of effort as you do. You may be creating an image of a great relationship to keep from facing the problems you know you have. Even if your partner doesn’t want to come to counseling with you, that doesn’t mean you have to go through this confusing time alone.
You don’t have to do this alone!
You might find it hard to ignore your relationship problems, and feel unsatisfied with the way things are. Some women feel like they are constantly giving to their partners, but not getting much back, and they don’t understand why it isn’t working out after all that sacrifice. This can lead to a lot of resentment toward your partner and make it difficult to want to work on things and remain close. Some women even start to feel depressed or anxious as a result.
You deserve better. When you work with me, we can explore what your needs are in the relationship and discover how you might be able to get those needs met. We specialize in women’s counseling and understanding how women experience relationship problems, depression, and anxiety. Working with me can provide you with unbiased support to help you untangle the complicated relationship dynamics so that you can better understand how to move forward.
You decide what to do next
You might be concerned that going to relationship counseling on your own is a sign that it’s over between you and your partner. Maybe the thought of leaving is too scary, but getting support right now is what you need. Alternatively, you might have no intention of leaving your partner, but want to learn how you can get your needs met given the current situation. Either way, after spending some time exploring how you’re feeling, what your needs are, and how to find satisfying connections, you may feel more confident in your decision regarding what to do next.
Get the support you need with counseling
You will experience a non-judgmental atmosphere to explore what’s happening in your relationship, how it affects you, and what you would like to be different. From there, your options will become clearer, allowing you to be more confident in whatever decision you come to.
Are friends and family becoming frustrated with your emotions, but you don’t know what to do to feel better?
People who have not experienced the depression or anxiety that comes with being in an unsatisfying relationship may not understand that it isn’t easy to just “get over it” or “cheer up”. We understand and can provide you with tools that have been proven to work with others who feel the same way you do.
Maybe your overactive mind just won’t shut off, or you’re worrying prevents you from going out and enjoying your life.
Oftentimes stress over a relationship can leave you feeling depressed or anxious. Counseling for depression and anxiety is available to help you learn the skills you need to overcome the behaviors keeping you down and alone.
There might be something keeping you from calling us even though you know you need help. Depression can start to become a friend if you have lived with it for a while, and the isolation can become a comfort. However, deep down inside you know that if you want to have a quality life with quality relationships, something needs to change. Somewhere inside, you hate that it effects those you love and your ability to enjoy time with the people in your life.
Don’t hesitate any longer; your healthy life is waiting for you. Enjoy time with others without your mood getting in the way of true connections, and face each challenge with greater confidence. You don’t have to live with this — we can help. Most people who come and see us notice a positive change in just a few sessions. Contact us today.
